GIGASENSE® is a fail-safe anti-collision system / collision avoidance system for track bound cranes (EOT) or similar equipment in tough industrial environment. The GIGASENSE anti-collision system is easy to install, robust, maintenance free and comes with built in self diagnostic functions to monitor the system. The microwave technology makes it especially suitable for steel-works, harbors and the like environments
The GIGASENSE anti-collision system controls and protects track bound cranes or similar machinery. Each crane has its own system (A or B), which consist of an active antenna and a relay box. The antenna sends a microwave signal to the opposite system. By using Doppler technique, the distance and relative speed are calculated. The output from the electronics activates the preset relays in the relay box
There are 3 relays in the relay box:
Relay 1 = Warning (speed reduction).
Relay 2 = Stops crane movement.
Relay 3 = Function control.
Avoids crane accidents and protects property and production. Designed to work in the toughest conditions such as in Steel works, Harbours, Mines etc. Fail Safe operation due to supervision of function, both in antenna box and relay box. The signal is very hard to disturb, the A- and B units use different frequencies, different polarization of the Microwaves and a ”fingerprint” radar reflection. The function has a backup capacitor in case of power failure. The anti collision system is not disturbed by rain, dust/metal particles, fog or sunlight.
